Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in a number of settings along with various rehabilitation lengths and plans to accommodate the varying needs of clients with any type of and degree of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential centers now being included in many insurance companies, you shouldn't have to put off getting substance abuse treatment services for anybody who needs it.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of rehab services regarding intensity of care, for the reason that individual will be able to maintain their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of needing to stay in a rehab program while undergoing rehabilitation services. Even if this may seem perfect it may not provide the required change of atmosphere than many people in recovery have to have to experience a successful rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these situations, it may appear like a drawback but people really have a much more leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, treatment centers will frequently offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some rehab facilities accept Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present any other form of private health care insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of centers, and in this case individuals may choose to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality treatment facility that will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may qualify for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but generally only inside the state which offers the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some sort of alcohol and drug treatment service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation centers. Individuals could have to take part in a drug rehab facility that's within their network of providers and there may be other limitations like the length of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select a quality center they prefer and meet with a rehab specialist to find out if their insurance covers it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility provided by many different drug rehabilitation programs in order to help individuals afford rehab where this may not have been possible initially. As an example, one client's price for rehabilitation might be different and less than another person whose financial situation is better making them more prepared to pay for the full price of rehabilitation. Registrars consider additional circumstances apart from income including number of dependents to determine the final cost using the sliding scale.
